It’s been quite some time since the Motorola Droid RAZR HD was first reported to be due for release. To be precise, it was even rumored in the past that the Droid RAZR HD may be out on Verizon before the Samsung Galaxy S3, a phone that the carrier eventually released last month, a few weeks after other U.S. carriers did. The wait may be over soon for consumers eagerly looking forward to the device, as Motorola has just started inviting people from the press to attend what could be a grand reveal scheduled September 5 in New York City.
As the invites include the word “display”, it is now believed that this event would mark the long-awaited announcement of the Motorola Droid RAZR HD. There hasn’t been anything confirmed about the handset’s features and specifications, but it is expected that this device would be Verizon’s answer to AT&T’s Motorola Atrix HD or Atrix 3. A high-definition screen would definitely be among the specs, though it still isn’t known what type of HD screen would be used; chances are it could be either a Super AMOLED HD or LCD2 display. Other rumored specifications include a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 4G LTE Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (with Android 4.1 update to follow), 8-megapixel rear camera and 2,500 mAh battery. In addition to the above, Android Ice Cream Sandwich may be augmented by Motorola’s own user interface.
The Motorola Droid RAZR HD will likely be joining other handsets, such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Apple iPhone 5, in entering the crowded smartphone competition next month. The Galaxy Note 2 will most probably be unveiled in Berlin on August 29, at a special “Unpacked” event scheduled ahead of IFA 2012. The iPhone 5 or new iPhone may be unveiled a week after the rumored Motorola event, on September 12, and released nine days thereafter.
